I was born and raised in Albany and have spent all but my 10 years in the Navy here. My passion for real estate was established at a young age due to my father who was an appraiser and owned some rental property. My brother and I have many memories helping my mom and dad work with the rentals. I graduated from OSU with a BS in Finance and later pursued my MBA while stationed in New York. My wife Danita, and I met at the age of 17 as camp counselors at a church camp in Coburg.
While in the Navy Danita and I were married and later adopted our three children, Jazzlyn, Jared and Marshall. After coming back to Albany I worked 20 years for Fiserv in the financial services industry. I enjoy reading, hiking, humor and meeting for coffee. In July of 2016 I hiked the whole Oregon Coast Trail (http://hikeoct.com). Danita and I are Christians and have been active with Grace Bible Fellowship since 1998.
